| How do you know somebody is hating you if you do not know him?

  To know somebody has two different meanings.  If you said you hated me in
  this newsgroup, would I thereby know you?  Hardly.  The people who have come
  out of nowhere to express hatred and anger think they know me, however, in
  the sense that they spout an enormous amount of drivel that they /invented/
  about me based on what they think they saw.  Clearly, these people are quite
  insane, but what does it mean to /know/ somebody except that you think that
  what you have concluded about them is true?

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
